Institute Staff Participate in AIDS Walk New York

New York, NY (May 18, 2015) – Yesterday, 56 Institute employees walked in the 30th annual AIDS Walk in New York City.  The walk took place in Central Park.  The Institute’s team so far has raised a total of $1,000, which will support efforts to combat HIV and AIDS.

This year the walk raised $4.88 million. In its 30 years, AIDS Walk New York has inspired nearly 890,000 people to walk, and millions more to donate, raising more than $139 million. The funds raised at the event remain a vital lifeline that sustains GMHC’s (Gay Men’s Health Crisis) prevention, care, and advocacy programs for the thousands of men, women, and families affected by the disease in the tri-state area. Proceeds also benefit dozens of other HIV/AIDS service organizations that are able to participate and raise funds through the Community Partnership Program (CPP).
